Bernie Sanders to be guest at Louisiana Democratic Party annual dinner



Vermont Sen. and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will be a guest at the 2015 Louisiana Democratic Party Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in New Orleans July 25.*

Sanders has proven a draw on the campaign trail*and has begun to crack the 20 percent mark in some recent polls ? still far behind frontrunner Hillary Clinton, but Sanders has excited some of the Democratic base in a way that Clinton hasn't, with as many as 10,000 people showing up for his rallies.*Sanders has been outspoken about what he calls "the grotesque level of income and wealth inequality" in America; called for free tuition at four-year public colleges and universities; and advocated for Wall Street reform. (The Vermont newspaper Seven Days has kept up with all things Bernie for years in an ongoing feature called "Bernie Beat.")

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar is set to deliver the dinner's keynote speech, and former Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu will be honored that night as well.?
